The Register
of
Newtown.

Newtown Register.

Newtown was taken out of Wem, and formed into a separate parish, in the year 1861. It consists of the townships of Newtown, Northwood, and Wolverley, and its area is 2,764 acres. The population in 1901 was 367.

The chapel was consecrated 10th November, 1666, by the name of " the Blessed Charles, King and Martyr," and it is one of the few churches in England which bear that dedication. The present building was erected in 1868, and consists of nave, chancel, south porch, and western bell-turret.

The Parish Register Abstract gives this information about the Register:

" Newtown Chapelry (Wem Parish) C. One Book, Bap., Bur., 1780-1812."

The earlier entries will be found in the Wem Registers.

The following list of the Clergy who served the chapel of Newtown is very incomplete. It will be observed that some of them were curates of Wem :-

1655-1662, Robert Smith.
1665, ---Cartwright.
1689, Francis Williams.
1710-1711, Lawrence Gardner.
1711-1718, Thomas Cook.
1718-1720, Thomas Blakeway.
1720-1727, George Tyler.
1727-1728, ---Thomas, or Thornes.
1728-1729, William Parry.
1729, ---Sutton.
1732-1734, --- Salmon.
1735, ---Sowerton.
1741-1747, George Tyler, also Rector of Petton.
1747-1753, at least, Samuel Garbet, junior.
1799-1830, Richard Parkes, Vicar of Loppington.
1830-1863, William Dixon.
1863-1875, Thomas Crossfield, Vicar.
1876-1904, Henry Kendal Hope, M.A., Vicar.
1904, Henry Phillips Lee, M A., Vicar.

The Register was transcribed by Mr. T. R. Horton, and the proof- sheets, as they passed through the press, were collated with the original Register by the Rev. Henry Phillips Lee, the present vicar of Newtown by whose kind permission they are now printed.
